Recipe | Frozen Chocolate

My sister and I were tasked with making dessert for a recent family lunch. After searching Pinterest and several other websites we settle for this this recipe. The frozen chocolate squares were very rich and chocolaty {after I double the chocolate called for in the original recipe} and refreshing after a warm day. Although the frozen chocolate was good, we all decided that we had just made really fancy fudgsicles. I am not sure I will be making these again, but they were good while they lasted. Plus, I got to share the baking experience with my sister which was a nice change because I am usually in the kitchen baking solo.  No worries, I am not totally solo because the hubs can never stray too far from the kitchen when something yummy is baking — plus he always has to come and steal of few kisses from the chef. That really is the best part of baking right??!
